Belmond's much-beloved debut novel, A Rather Lovely Inheritance was
""a rare gem"" (Romance Reviews Today) and "An entertaining yarn
with family drama and intrigue aplenty."(Booklist). Now, in the
eagerly anticipated sequel, A Rather Curious Engagement, our
American freelancer- turned-heiress Penny Nichols is back for more
fun- and another engaging international romp with her English hero,
Jeremy. Penny has the great London flat, the classic car, the villa
in France, the fabulous bank account, and a great guy to share them
with. So everything's perfect, right? Right? Er, well... Pursued by
gigolos, gold-diggers, an ex-wife, and highly aggressive salesmen
chasing after their millions, Penny and Jeremy decide to take the
summer off and sock away most of their inheritance for one year.
But they allow themselves one big ""splurge"" from their wish
list-- and that's where all the trouble begins. At an auction on
the French Riviera, Penny and Jeremy win much more than they
bargain for, uncovering a centuries-old rivalry involving the theft
of a priceless treasure linked to Beethoven's Germany, the
mysterious island of Corsica, a luxurious 1920s yacht, and a
medieval castle on Lake Como, Italy. A Rather Curious Engagement is
a stay-up-all-night read, with an irresistible, unbeatable heroine
seeking answers to intriguing questions about history, art, fortune
and love. It's the perfect companion to the first novel.
